This mountain goat hut search is proving to be very challenging! Every decent place falls under one or other hazard zone! For example a popular town is fully covered by the following hazard warning-

Gefahrenhinweiskarte spontane rutschung (Hazard warning card for spontaneous landslides)

Thousands of people live there, do people just ignore the dangers and buy anyway and hope for the best
YES! Danger is ignored because the mountain has not killed anyone since the times of my grandpa. This sense of security is admirable, nothing special. People also rebuild after a hurricane destroys a coastal town instead of building a new town outside the risk zone.

Large landslides and snow avalanches are events that may happen every few centuries. Old towns have been abandoned after a catastrophe and people simply forgets about them. Others feel empowered after surviving the first time like this guy back on 2019
